Originally from Moscow, Russia, at the age of 21 I was diagnosed with blood cancer and given six months to live. Out of desperation, I turned from traditional medicine to Chinese medicine, Tai Chi and QiGong (Chi Kung). Miraculously, after several months, I was given a clean bill of health. My life saving experience led me to travel to China, Thailand and Europe in a search of a deeper understanding of the power of body and mind. I have learned eastern philosophies and the ancient practice of Tai Chi and QiGong; I haven’t seen a doctor since.

Since that time, practice of Tai Chi and QiGong has become a part of my life. I’ve been teaching and practicing Tai Chi Chuan and QiGong for over 20 years. And I am happy to share this ancient practice with you.

Now I am not only happy to be alive, I am actually happy to be myself and I want the same for you. I want you to be thrilled to be you; thrilled to wake up in your life every day.

Irina teaches Qigong Classes (Chi Kung 氣功) & Tai Chi Chuan with a single purpose - better health for life!

Irina's programs created with one single purpose of helping her students to attain health levels that they have set for themselves and getting the results that they came for.

"I tried several different Qigong practitioners as well as DVD’s before coming to Irina Benoit. The Qigong practice that Irina leads is definitely the most challenging I have experienced, but it has yielded the greatest results for me personally. I have found her classes extremely rewarding, and afterwards I enjoy a profound feeling of well-being. Irina is an inspiring teacher; I’d highly recommend her." - C.C. (Mississauga)

Irina's students come from being at physical fitness levels however just after a few classes they enjoy bigger energy reserves for everyday life and being able to do more in one single day then they could in a week! The long term effects have shown health improvements from regular QiGong and Tai Chi practice.
